According to a article in Variety written by Dave McNary “Deadpool” could make as much a $100 million on this long weekend.
Making a estimated a Friday opening of $35 million, which also includes the $12.7 million from the late night screenings.
Fox had been hoping for a debut of between $60 to $65 million but with some creative marking it looks like it will beat out “Fifty Shades of Grey’s” $93 million opening on the same weekend last year.
After years of trying to get the movie made it looks like Ryan Reynolds will finally gets a franchise and people will forget about that other superhero movie he made (cough) Green Lantern.
The film has been getting some good reviews and has scored 84% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Not bad for a movie with a estimated budget of $58 million.
